Since I finally have XL on PC, I've started back my Morning Kup of Kombat series :D I stream most mornings, and then shoot 'em over to my Youtube page. Hope you enjoy and help me out if you see something that will help. I'm trying level up so I can start attending Yomi tourneys again.

That Jason player let you get away with murder. >.> He didn't punish you for b14 on block, he didn't armor through the gap during b14 into Sun Choke or EX pizza.

Not saying you're bad, but he was clearly a waste of your time. =P I haven't watched the matches yet, but I'm gonna.

Also, parry the hell out of those machetes. Use b2 more often during the neutral and/or oki.

Upon watching more matches, I have some other suggestions.

For one: you're using f12 as a punish instead of doing f1b2. You lose out on a lot of damage like that. Work on punishing with the following combo: f1b2 > s1 > f2 > b14~db2.

If you think your timing is gonna be off, use b12~db2 instead. The difference in damage is negligible.

If you can make your opponent respect you, stagger f1. I like to do f1 and then f1b2 if they tried to press a button that was slower than my f1. It doesn't always work, but throwing it out there now and again can be rewarding.

Awesome, thanks for the tips! I'll work them in right away.

I don't think he is. They gutted our beloved EX db1. They should have made it a two bar armored launcher somehow.

He's still solid, but I'm all about Sun God now. I still use War God on occasion to piss people off with his mixups. =P
Am all about the mix on the side of his aggressive pressure. f12, d4 into db2/db1. They will eat enough damage off of that till they start respecting the d4, once that happens then it's free ex db1 after a f12. That's how we get our ex launcher back, conditioning with a glaze of yolo ;]

Why I never thought of using EX db1 after f12 is beyond me. That's a good idea. I generally just d4 after f12.

When your opponent understands that your f12 jails into d4, f12 becomes your free gimmicky option select tool. you can do f12 into f12 back to back even and they wont do anything but block hopping for the carnage to soon be over. You can play all sort of mind games after a f12 on block to the point where they would rather get hit by it just so they'd get pushed away from you lol

War - Ex DB 1 is shit unless you combo it cause you get stuffed so easily now.

Sun - Still strong, tick throws are the best.

Blood - Fun to play suicide rush down sometimes but otherwise not really that good unless you play super safe Kotal (keeping up blue totem and getting meter).

Kotal got nerfed but he's still fun. I'm glad I picked up Jason though made me start playing again.

Some close matches! Loving Blood God again. Been mixing it up a lot with his throw.
Nice games man, shame Kotal Khan come out on the wrong side of this patch, his design is so cool, definitely the best of the new characters.

That Kitana player was godlike, is it anyone on here?
